Stunning Edwardian Two Level Condominium
in Prestigious Presidio Heights

3953 Washington is an incredible house-like condominium with four bedrooms plus a den in a gorgeous two-unit building.  This home features superb architectural details such as raised paneled walls, coffered ceilings, two gorgeous fireplaces and beautiful cabinetry.  The quality of the craftsmanship is visible throughout the home.  It features a private entrance with leaded glass window and a grand stairway leading to the main level.  The main level entry hall greets you with whimsical patterned walls and gives access to the dramatic living room with barrel front wall of windows, beamed ceiling and built in cabinetry flanking the oversized wood-burning fireplace.  The generously sized formal dining room with amazing detailed built-in cabinetry and woodwork is filled with light from a large light well on the east side of the room.  A second fireplace is located in the dining room for cozy meals by the fireside.  Beyond the dining room is the beautifully remodeled chef’s kitchen.  A six burning Wolf range is the centerpiece of the kitchen with fantastic tiled backsplash and powerful stainless steel hood.  There is a wine fridge and a butcher block topped island with seating for your guests as well as a pressed tin ceiling and dramatic lighting; a wonderful place to cook and enjoy a quick meal.   Across from this terrific kitchen is a separate private office, the perfect place to keep track of your business and hectic life.  Also on this level you will find a sumptuous master suite, two generously sized additional bedrooms and a hall bath.  These all radiate off of the artistically finished hallway with gorgeous blue ceiling and handsome woven material walls.  The master suite is a place you will never want to leave; not only is there a wall of closets, there is a classic marble master bath with large jetted tub, spacious stall shower and dual sinks facing a wall of mirrors.  Attached to the master bedroom is a bright sunroom surrounded with windows overlooking the garden, the perfect place for a cup of coffee and the Sunday paper; private and relaxing.  The two guest rooms on this level have generous closets and their own private sinks, harkening back to the conveniences of the Edwardian era.  A window seat is found in one and a gorgeous stained glass window in the other.


From the main level hall there is a handsome, gracious stairway leading to the lower level rooms. At the foot of the stairs is a very amazing family room with sliding glass doors leading to a private covered patio and lovely exclusive use south facing garden. There is a second set of windows overlooking the yard and the room gets bathed in light from the sun. One end of the room is filled with bookcases and there is plenty of room for a game table as well as a fantastic seating area for lounging and TV viewing. A wide hall leads to the interior access to the garage with its deeded parking space plus additional storage. Off of this hall is the fourth bedroom with a wall of closets and a bit farther on you will find the third bathroom and laundry closet; your guests are not going to want to leave this suite of rooms.

This home is located in prestigious Presidio Heights, just a few blocks from the Arguello Gate leading into the Presidio with its Presidio Golf course, Julius Kahn Park and miles of trails and open space. It is also near all the great shops and restaurants found on marvelous Sacramento Street as well as Laurel Village. 3953 Washington is a unique and wonderful find in a fantastic location that is hard to beat.
